The final BCS Standings have been released, and to no one's surprise, it'll be Florida State vs. Auburn in the national championship. Alabama checks in at No. 3, with Michigan State and Stanford rounding out the top five. 

Here are the final rankings:

1. Florida State (.996)
2. Auburn (.964)
3. Alabama (.906)
4. Michigan State (.860)

For a refresher, here is how the BCS rankings are determined:

A team's on-field performance during the regular season is the principal factor in determining its position in the BCS standings. The formula consists of three components, each weighted equally: the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Harris Interactive College Football Poll and an average of six computer rankings (Jeff Anderson and Chris Hester, Richard Billingsley, Wes Colley, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin and Peter Wolfe). Because the conference commissioners believe that teams should be judged on performance, there are no preseason BCS standings.
